Beautiful 4 bedroom cottage near Douglas Beach
"Switching Gears" is the perfect vacation cottage! When our rental week was over we were all sad to leave. It's very pretty inside and out, spotless and had everything we needed. The 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms were just right for our family. I think our favorite spot was the lovely screened-in porch which we used morning, noon and night! The bunk bed was especially fun for our 4 1/2 year old grandson who never slept in one before. But his favorite place was playing in the outdoor shower stall! His imagination provided hours of fun and he never even turned on the water! He pretended it was a train, a police station and even his own house! We loved the location of the cottage, too. It was a short walk to Douglas Beach, about a mile to downtown Douglas and St. Peter's Catholic Church was less than a mile away so my husband walked to mass everyday. Saugatuck was a very short drive for shopping and dining.
We would definitely recommend this cottage to our friends and hopefully will come back ourselves one day. Lakeshore Lodging was very easy to work with also.

We were looking for a last minute rental along the lakeshore in Saugatuck/Douglas area and had inquired on a house via the website. That one ended up not working out, but Ashley sent me additional properties that fit my criteria and this house was perfect for our families' needs. It's just two blocks to the beach and sits in a quiet neighborhood. We had three floors to sprawl out and the screened porch was a welcomed bonus. We spent a good portion of the rainy days on the porch. Everything else in the house was clean and well-maintained, and gave us some good ideas for the design of our new home. The check-in/out process was super easy and I will definitely book again with lakeshore lodging.
We are happy to work with groups looking for last minute accommodations. Luckily this great home happened to be available for this family to enjoy as it is typically booked all summer!
Had a pleasant family stay..... child-friendly--grandkids loved the swing and roasting marshmallows in the fire pit. Very clean and well equipped.
